One day after reports came out the Chael Sonnen failed a random drug test, the 3 time UFC title contender announced his retirement on UFC Tonight.
“There is going to be a day where I’m going to no longer have the title of fighter. That’s the reality. But I don’t ever want there to be the day where I can’t have the title of parent and father and husband. My health has got to come first, Sonnen said.”
Sonnen has gone out of his way to get inside his opponent’s head, he has been on an up and down roller coaster ride. Since losing to Anderson Silva in their first fight back in 2010, Sonnen has a 3-3 record in his last six fights, two of those have been for gold.
It was an honor to watch him fight and we here at MMA Frenzy, wish him all the best.
